Life can be both easy and difficult, it all depends on how you approach it. I don’t know how you see life but I see life as a continuous moving stream. Those who swim in the direction the stream is flowing will have a happy and fulfilled life and those who try to swim against the flow of the stream in either their ignorance or knowledge; will have a difficult and miserable life.
To this end make it your duty to understand life and it’s fundamental rules and laws. To understand the fundamentals of life, I will advise you to read The Game of Life and How to Play It by Florence Scovel Shinn and in order to get a basic understanding of the laws of life, I advise you to read Working With the Law: 11 Truth Principles for Successful Living by Raymond Holliwell. Reading and truly understanding these two books will have a tremendously positive impact on your life.
The fact is that you can create whatever type of life or lifestyle you want. You just need to understand life and swim in the direction it’s flowing or in accordance with her rules. All it takes for you to have that great and amazing life you’ve always dreamt about is that you work and apply your life in accordance with the laws of life. This is all it takes.
Today I want to tell you two things you must know in order to have a blissful life:
(1) You need faith to create or manifest whatever you need in your life.
(2) You need to be grateful for all the good things currently in your life in order for them to increase.
The power of faith and gratitude is that one creates and the other multiplies.
Faith: The Key To Manifestation
What is faith? Faith is a belief that is not based on proof. It has no proof at it initial stage but when used correctly it produces results that you can call physical proof.
Apostle Paul wrote in the book of Hebrew 11:6 that without faith it is impossible to please the Infinite Mind. Why did he say that? He emphasized the importance of faith in his letters to the Hebrews because it is a basic requirement for all who wants to manifest anything in their lives.
In the Book of Genesis 1, we were told that God said let there be and whatever followed the sentence “let there be” came into existence. What some people might not have noticed in the Book of Genesis 1 was the application of faith as the key ingredient for manifestation. Obviously, the application of faith came after the imagination of what’s needed to be created but it was faith that brought them all into manifestation.
So faith is the key to the manifestation of the things you want. Apostle Paul gave the perfect explanation on how to use faith effectively for manifestation in a sentence made up of just ten words in Romans 4:17 when he wrote: “calleth those things which be not as though they were.“
Can you see the key to manifestation in that ten words statement? Your answer is probably a “No.” I shall explain. Apostle Paul was writing about the formula for creating whatever you want and it is the same formula used in the creation of everything that has ever existed. He was talking about God’s creation formula. This is why he wrote “even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.”
God’s creation formula requires total faith. When you have total faith in the power of the Infinite Mind, all you have to do in order to create or manifest whatever you want in life is to “call that thing that currently only exists in your imagination as though it already exists in real life.” This will start the creation process.
Faith is the key to manifestation because it never fails to bring into manifestation that which is the object of its attention. It is the key to connect to the creative power of the Universe. Without faith, it will be impossible for anyone to please the Infinite Mind. Pleasing the Infinite Mind simply means meeting His requirement for manifestation.
So, to create whatever you want in life, first, have absolute faith in the power of God. For God is the Universe, Infinite Mind, Universal Mind and Life. Have absolute faith in its power.
And secondly, use the creation formula given in Romans 4:17. You can use this potent and powerful formula by simply referring to your desires as things that are already in existence. Refer to them in the absolute belief that they are already in existence and you shall witness them in your life in little or no time. This formula has never failed. It works every time.
What about those people who have but just want more? Well, there is nothing wrong with wanting more. We are all here for more. More life, more expression, more love, more happiness, more progress, more living, more enjoyment and e.t.c. So, if you want more of the things you already have, then, in essence, you are simply saying I want an increase. You are like a man who already has a job he loves but he wants better pay. If you are in this boat, I want to tell you that you there is also a formula for increasing whatever you have in your life. This is called Gratitude.
Gratitude: The Great Multiplier
God the Universal Mind is the Source of all things. Everything in life cometh from one source and only gratitude will connect you to that source of all good things. What makes gratitude really powerful and extraordinary is that it not only connect us to the Source of all good things, it also multiplies whatever we are being grateful for.
In the Book of Matthew 14:19-21, Jesus Christ demonstrated the power of gratitude. He (Jesus) knew the formula and how it works, so He just applied it and got an instantaneous result. Jesus knew that when you have nothing, you pray with faith for the manifestation of what you want but when you have something in your possession but you want it in larger quantity for whatever reason apart from greed; all you have to do is to give thanks just like He did in Matthew 14:19-21.
Whatever you have in small quantity which you will really like more of it, bring out the one you already have (when I say “bring out” I meant either physically or imaginary) and gives thanks to God for giving you that which you currently have in your possession.
When things were hard for me in the past and I had only £5 in my possession, I brought out the £5, put it on a table and knelt down in front of it and gave thanks to God for giving me that £5. Look at me now and you will never guess that such a time ever existed.
By simply being grateful wholeheartedly for the money in your possession, you are guaranteed to increase it. And it works for your health, material possession and even friends.
If you doubt this, when someone gives you money, no matter how small the value, take that money and give thanks to God from the bottom of your heart for making that money come into your possession. I can guarantee you that within 30 days you will be given a larger amount of money in one way or the other. But what you must NOT do when applying the gratitude method for money is to reject money for whatever reason. Rejection of money in any form will SURELY stop the flow of money towards you for the time being. NEVER EVER REJECT MONEY. Money is a shy energy. It can’t handle rejection or fear.
This “No-Rejection” principle applies to whatever you are trying to multiply. Accept what is given to you first, be thankful and then decide later what to do with it. If you don’t like what you have been given, am sure someone else will be happy to have it. Why not bless someone else by giving it to them.
My mum once said to me “everything is simple if one knows how”. This is true for everything in life. if you want something you have never had before, refer to that thing as though you already have it. I have written an article on using faith to manifest whatever you want in life. It is titled “How to manifest anything“. I encourage you to read it. It will change your life.
For those who just want to increase whatever they already have in their possession, then all you have to do is to give thanks from the bottom of your health.
Gratitude should never be used to bribe the Infinite Mind. This will be a wasteful effort. God knows your heart and your true intention of doing whatever you are doing. So let your gratitude be of a pure and sincere heart. Not an attempt to manipulate the Infinite Mind.
So, if you want better health than your current health, then give thanks for your current health. Because after all, you’re still alive and breathing. If you want more money, give thanks for the money currently in your possession. This applies to everything you want to multiply. Gratitude never fails to multiply. For it is the great multiplier of things.
If you take one thing away from reading this article, it should be that, with faith you create and with gratitude you multiply what is already created. These are the powers of faith and gratitude.
